Thanksgiving in Wine Country has taken on a special meaning this year after the devastating wildfires destroyed thousands of homes. Businesses and community groups in response are stepping up, offering free meals and places for families to gather. At Franchett's Wood Fire Kitchen in Santa Rosa, staff helped quickly after the fires and believed it was important to offer a special Thanksgiving meal. "Now it seemed like it was needed even more," owner John Franchetti said.
Hundreds of volunteers on Wednesday were making last-minute preparations for a traditional Thanksgiving feast at GLIDE in San Francisco. Earlier in the day Mayor Ed Lee, police Chief Bill Scott and fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White joined volunteers in serving 600 lunches as part of the organization's free daily meals program. As he’s done for decades, Rev. Cecil Williams was on hand to greet visitors, and everyone seemed to agree the lines are getting longer.
Napa Valley hosted a day of music, food and wine Sunday to say thank you to first responders for their hard work during the wildfires. More than a thousand people attended the free event called Wine Country Strong at the Lincoln Theater in Yountville. "Everybody put their heart into it," he said about the first responders. "Itâ€™s definitely a calling. Some of those people acted without care for themselves, and they saved a lot of lives."
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
